CONTINUING CRIMINAL RECORD REVIEW ACT CRIMINAL RECORD CHECKS

 

A STATUTORY CONTINUING REQUIREMENT

This requirement speaks to a registrant’s continued conduct and character, and suitability to be a practising health professional.

The BC Criminal Records Review Act (CRRA), which is not administered by the College, requires that registrants have a record review or check as specified under that Act every five years.

The CRRA process checks for a specified list of offences that are relevant to sexual or financial abuse of vulnerable adults or children.  In this context, adult patients are vulnerable adults.

The College ensures that it receives registrants’ CRRA check result reports when they are due. If a registrant fails to renew the check and the College does not receive their CRRA clearance, the registrant will not be permitted to practice.
